In March over 150 community members participated in the Leadership Forums hosted by Frontiers Foundation. The OKIMA Leadership Forums provided the community with access to individual members and organizations they would not normally work with and was a beginning to learning how to work together in partnership to address community needs. The participants were eager to work together to explore new ways of working together from a common thread: from a cultural framework. This community approach to working together was successful and in the future should have government representatives actively participating in the workshops, learning and working together in mutual partnership building.
